With Avengers: Endgame boasting Marvel Studios' biggest marketing budget to date, it comes as no surprise the studio has partnered with Audi for another epic promotional spot focusing on the rematch against Thanos. While the popular car manufacturer has been more involved with the Iron Man franchise in the past, now Audi's getting the engine revving for the film with a Captain Marvel debriefing to place the spotlight on its new electric SUV, the Audi e-tron.
In the two-minute spot, Carol Danvers is updated by a mysterious official about Thanos' snap, but also on what she missed out on since she left Earth with the Skrulls. It's a funny clip updating her on the Avengers roster, the war against gluten and how people Instagram their food without having to wait for photos to develop like in the '90s.
The partnership even highlights that, while Carol's pretty cozy getting from place to place in the SUV, one thing she still prefers is her trusty old pager, as opposed to how cell phones have evolved over the years. Last but not least, the agent takes Carol to a special lab to show how people move around in the 21st century.
The agent proceeds to show her the SUV being charged, but, eager for a test drive, Carol ignores it being plugged in and charges it with her own cosmic Infinity Stone-infused energy. She takes the car on the road with the agent and Goose in the backseat, only to be warned Earth does still have a limit, even for superheroes accustomed traveling at the speed of light.
